I herculined my CJ-7 about 2 weeks ago. I had everything pulled out of the tub (seats, roll-bar etc) already, so it was a breeze. I used corolles (sp?) from Eastwood to take care of the surface rust and bolted in a couple plates to cover up some holes created when I cut other rust spots out. I then scuffed it up with a green scratch pad and sandpaper. Used acetone to wipe it down and then started rolling it on. I did the entire inside of the tub twice, and used black spray paint to get up underneath the dash for a finished look.
I am VERY happy with the results. I've seen the sprayed on liner, and it is good, but way more expensive. The only advantage the sprayed on liner has is color matching as far as I am concerned. The catch there is that I'm sure it would cost an arm and a leg to touch up any damaged areas in the future. I know I can always pick up a $30 can of Herculiner at Kmart if I need a touch-up.
I didn't get mine on sale, so I paid the $89 for regular kit, and also bought another quart for $29. That was enough to do two coats, and some extra coats on the heavy use spots. I've seen where you can get it in grey and red for about $149 for the gallon kit. Black was a better option for me. ALSO, I've seen mention of a $20 rebate on the gallon kit, if it is still current.
Two thumbs up!
